James have you got that round the right way? Not snorting hemp pollen are 
you ;o)

Surely pressure at the hydraulic fluid loading bay will allow auto-drip 
cleansing down at the dirty slave end.
Just had a thought why not use a vaccuum line on the bleed nipple?

How to do this?

Just get a 50cc plastic syringe and apply a vac to a piece of transparent 
bleed tubing... raise it up and see all the crud /air seep out as nipple
